School district alliance to procure antibiotic-free chicken

Members of Urban School Food Alliance announce antibiotic-free standards for chicken suppliers.

THE Urban School Food Alliance, a coalition of the largest school districts in the U.S. — including New York City; Los Angeles, Cal.; Chicago, Ill.; Miami-Dade, Fla.; Dallas, Texas, and Orlando, Fla. — announced last week an antibiotic-free standard for companies to follow when supplying chicken products to its schools.

Serving nearly 2.9 million students daily, alliance members procure more than $550 million in food and supplies annually.
